Surprisingly good ”

Great customer service, clean big room, nice breakfast.

Vien dong really surprised us. After reading all the negative reviews, we chose another hotel besides this one. But after a nice morning run at the park across Vien Dong Hotel, we decided to check it out in person instead of relying just on reviews. We asked the reception who was very nice to show us a preview of the room and price. After thoroughly checking out the room and hotel amenities, we decided to book a few nights of our stay in Ho Chi Minh city at Vien Dong but through Agoda. Always book all hotels through Agoda, it is much cheaper than booking it directly with the hotel. Agoda usually fight to get its customers the very best price. For example, in this case, after checking Vien Dong hotel in person, we asked the kind receptionist who showed us the room, how much per night. His quote, even with the promotional discount the hotel was giving was $70 per night. The same room on the same dates we wanted to book thorough Agoda was $40. Anyway, getting back to the hotel, the staff was amazing, they even went as far as helping you to cross the crazy street in Vietnam after getting off the taxi to check in at hotel or when needing to get on a taxi. They responded quickly to our request for a non carpet room because my daughter is allergic to carpet. The room was nice and spacious and clean. It's also quiet. Breakfast buffet was nice. Overall an excellent hotel for the value, service, and cleanliness. Two thumbs up. The only bad thing in our opinion is the location. It's a but far from the city center. But if you are a backpackers into bars and nightclubs then it's perfect.

VIEN DONG HOTEL IN HO CHI MINH”

The hotel is ideally located at district 1, the commercial hub of the city. hotel is about 30 mins from the airport.. very near shopping areas, tour operators (sinh cafe) and dining areas. the park in front is a refreshing site.. staff are courteous and helpful..
nothing for the hotel except that it is very hard to cross the street because of the motorcycles. Anyway the hotel staff are kind enough to assist us in crossing..

For the price we paid at Vien Dong Hotel we were surprised to find a 5 star accomodation. The hotel is clean and spacious, room is cleaned and sheets changed everyday..The staff are courteous, friendly and helpful, giving us tips and advice as what to do in saigon.. The hotel is very near Ben Tanh market, tourist attractions and tour operators (I recommend Sinh Tourist which was recommended to us by the hotel staff). There is a park in front for a refreshing view..We booked this hotel because of good feedback and reviews from other guests and I agree with them 100%. we would definitely stay in this hotel for our next visit to ho chi minh!

Comfortable hotel closed to bus stop”

Very good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice room and good buffet breakfast.

Our bus stopped along the park in Pham Ngu Lao Street, so we just walked across the road to the hotel. With the help from the hotel staff, we can move the luggage, strollers and 2 toddlers much easier. We originally booked Deluxe Double room, but since the bed and room is small for our family to sleep all together, the hotel was flexible to change us to bigger room at the corner, and did our request to change to Deluxe Twin room the next day when room was available. Our little girls enjoyed the breakfast and lunch although they didn't eat much. The house keeping and room service is good. Since we stayed in high floor, we were not disturbed from the noise outside altough our room faces is park view. The hotel location is excellent and easy access to everywhere inclduing markets, shopping centres, hospital, restaurants, pubs,... Everytime we went out and arrived the hotel, the staff always help to call taxi and carry our stuff even sometimes they have to cross the road to get us. Of course we are so thanksful to them for their kind help everytime. We are happy to stay in Vien Dong Hotel and would like to recommend it to our family and friends too. Anyway, one bad experience that we want to share is a taxi driver in Ho Chi Minh City purposely cheated us assuming we didn't know the Vietnam dong. His behaviour was rude and cruel. My husband was arguing with him and almost phone the police, but finally he returned most of the excessive amount back. People along the street who saw us arguing with taxi told us that there are some taxi not belong to company, so it's better we take the company taxi like Vinasun, which clearly show the driver ID card, and avoid small black window taxi.

Friendly Staff, Clean and Comfortable rooms and best location!

The staff at the Vien Dong are no exception to the Ho Chi Minh friendly population. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, made sure we knew where we were going, how to brush off the street hawkers and how to cross the road! We used this hotel as a base camp for our Ho Chi Minh travels. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality this hotel provides for the low price. I cant wait to head back and can only hope the same staff will be there and that nothing has changed!

Staying at the Vien Dong for business”

Breakfast buffets are generous and very satisfying when included in the room price. The Vien Dong is on Pham Ngu Lao street, and a few blocks along there is an immense variety of nightlife and restaurants. Concierge and door staff are helpful and engaging.
Internet access is not free. Street noise can be a real problem in some lower-level rooms that face out onto the street.

I stayed at the Vien Dong Hotel when I was in Ho Chi Minh City for a recent conference. It is situated directly across a broad public park which is a very pleasant place for a stroll if you can shut out the incessant buzz of Ho Chi Minh City's perpetual traffic. The international traveler would find the rooms more like the average 3-star hotel standard. The deluxe room was spacious and very comfortable. Linen and bedding were very clean and of good quality. Some rooms also have high glass windows overlooking the park and small pond. Amenities are basic but reliably functional. Reception staff generally spoke good English, but you may find that the most helpful folks are the doormen (security) at the front lobby or just outside. Public transport can be a major hassle in HCMC, so your best bet is always to get a metered taxi as a relatively cheap means of transport to the main attractions. Access to other transport is poor, but points of interest such as the Ben Thanh markets are easily reached on foot, if you can brave the chaotic HCMC traffic!

Review of Vien Dong Hotel”

Clean and attractive hotel in the centre of the backpacker district.
Nil

The Vien Dong is in the backpacker district of Ho Chi Min City. Everything is close by as well as the long distance express buses that stop opposite the hotel. The reception area is very clean and elegant with a lovely bar area which was perfect for starting the evening before stepping out into the street. It felt very welcoming having a doorman opening and shutting the front doors. At times someone was playing the piano. The room was spacious comfortable and clean. The restaurant provided a full buffet breakfast which was very nice.

perfect midrange hotel”

clean, quiet for backpacker district, comfortable, free breakfast

Perfect for someone who is on a budget but not necessarily a backpacker budget. Sure it's on the pricier end of a budget hotel for Saigon, but you really get what you pay for. The Vien Dong Hotel is big, especially compared to the backpacker hotels nearby, but is very comfortable and clean. I was traveling with a friend and we were initially disappointed that some of the higher rated, small hotels in Saigon were fully booked, but we ended up being very happy with the Vien Dong Hotel. Some of the smaller hotels that we were looking at were on the bar street in the backpacker district and would have been very loud at night with noise from the bar. The Vien Dong is one block over from the bar street and faces the park. It's quiet at night although the rooms aren't really soundproof so sometimes you can hear other guest talking as they come home. Very clean and comfortable and good breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended.

1st Trip to Vietnam and loved it......no more Bali”

Great location, all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful even the door man who stopped the traffic for us to cross the road. Our room was roomy and very clean.
I could not fault this accomodation and will come back again soon.

We had an awesome time in Ho Chi Minh City and it was great to get back to our room @ Vien Dong away from the hustle and bustle of this thriving city. .We enjoyed watching the activities in the park across the road whilst eating our fabulous breakfast.We also enjoyed the immediate area around this hotel for quality eating out.

we stayed at the vien dong hotel in hcmc for three nights over chinese new year. it's a lovely hotel with all amenities and is in a great location. the area is mostly a backpackers' area with great food options in the nearby alleys, lots of tourist places around to book trips, etc and shops to buy everything from souvenirs to essentials. however, the hotel is quite fancy and so a nice option if you don't want to spend the money you'd have to spend for a similar hotel in dong khoi. it is about a 20 minute walk to the centre of town - i.e. the dong khoi area and just a few minutes from the lively ben thanh market. we had a comfortable stay. only thing is that the rooms with a view of the park in the front of the hotel can be noisy. there were overnight new year markets in the area, so we opted for a room facing into the inner courtyard of the hotel. so our room looked on to a square balcony with entrances to a lot of other rooms - i.e. we could never open ourt curtains. we were given a 5th floor room and asked for a room facing the park on a higher floor in order to avoid the noise. the staff were very helpful and explained that those rooms mostly had twin size beds (we needed a queen/king size since our 7 year old was with us). they showed us one room on the 6th floor but that was still too noisy. maybe ata nother time of the year, the noise levels will be better. overall, a good experience.

Lovely designed interior with excellent services”

Clean big comfortable room, excellent services

The services provided by Vien Dong Hotel is above excellent. The hotel staffs came to greet & escorted us acrossed the busy street of Pham Ngu Lao into Vien Dong Hotel when the airport taxi stopped & off loaded our bags on the opposite side. Check into our lovely, beautiful & comfortable room was just like VIP guests, the front desk staff escorted us all the way into our room & make sure that we accepted the room condition before leaving & our luggages came after. Breakfast goes very well for my wife and 5 year old daughter. Food is excellent, services provided is excellent and I will certainly come back to stay here. To all other travellers, please enjoy the beautiful interior & excellent hospitality provided by Vien Dong Hotel.

Centrally located, room clean and staff friendly”

Staff well trained anf helpful within walking distance to most of the tourist spots in the city

The hotel is centrally located at Pham Ngu Lau Street in Ho Chi Minh City and easily access to most of the tourists spots in the city. The room is a bit small but is clean and comfortable. The front desk staff are gerenally good and friendly. One of our members in the group had lost her mobile phone, the front desk staff on our arrival did not give much assistance to us in helping us to make a report to the local police. Until the next day, we asked assistance from another shift front desk staff,Ms Thuy Kieund ,who was execptional helpful and Kieund had even arranged another staff Mr Trong Tam to accompany us to the police station to make a report and acted as our interpreter. We are very thankful to them. To make a report in the local police station, an intreper is most essential as the police do not speak English.

Two thumbs up for Vien Dong Hotel HCM”

Good Location, Nice Large Room, Good Breakfast

Staying in a deluxe suite was really a nice experince for us. It has two seperate rooms with large living area. We also enjoyed the balcony with city park view. Every morning we could see Vietnam people jogging, having aerobic, etc. Location is very good, near to Ben Tanh Market, just need 10 minutes walk. Easy to go to other places, just 10 minutes by taxi to go to Saigon Central Post Office, Notre-Damme Cathedral, and Independence Palace. The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. We recommend this deluxe suite for anybody who wants to enjoy their holiday in Ho Chi Minh.

Great Value for the money”

Cleanliness, Staff, Location

i have stayed here before, and will stay here again. the rooms are a good size, comfortable, and i ended up (again) with one that overlooked the park across from the hotel. the staff are always friendly, particularly the "bell-hops/doormen". the restaurant is decent for breakfast, but then again, when you're in ho chi minh city, there are many places to get a better breakfast.

Ho Chi Minh...... definetly an experience”

Cheap, clean, extra friendly door men, good location, free internet
hard beds, bad tv reception

We booked the Vien Dong after reading good reviews. The hotel was in a great location, in the middle of District 1, walking distance to the markets with plenty of cheap good resturants close by. The rooms were nice, but just your basic facilities. Buffet breakfast was great, I recommend the freshly made omelettes. Reception staff were a bit unfriendly, but the happy cheerful door men definetly made up for it with there joking and laughing.

1st trip to Ho Chi Minh City”

Location is great - lots of travel agencies / eateries, shops and within walking distance to the Ben Thanh market (5-10 mins. Our room / bathroom are clean and sufficiently comfortable.
Front desk staff could be more pleasant.

As this is our first trip to Ho Chi Minh City, we decided on Vien Dong based the reviews we read on the internet and were pleasantly pleased with the hotel's location, general cleanliness and the security staff. There is a spa on the 2nd level of the hotel frequented by local male patrons. Our concern was partially laid to rest when we witnessed the security staff escort the visiting patrons right up to the spa to ensure that they do not stray elsewhere in the hotel. Good job ! Keep it up !

Excellent”

Good experience with this hotel in terms of staff (professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness), overall product quality (room / amenities / services / facilities / cleanliness) and location, being at the heart of Saigon. Please remember that check ins are usually at 14:00pm so if you are arriving into the city early, always, always, always...remember to inform them well in advance to ensure you are able to get a room on time. All in all, good product with good value for money with very good service - I give Vien Dong Hotel my recommendation. Cheers!

one of my favorite hotel in Saigon ”

Attentive staff, various breakfast, value for money

I could say here will be the first hotel I book for next time I go back to Saigon I took a taxi to Vien Dong hotel but taxi driver parked so far away from hotel and the bell man helped me so much even when I needed to cross the road while he carried my heavy luggages on the street and he spoke something in Vietnamese to taxi driver for he's not gonna cheat on me I'm so thankful for that The room was amazing with the carpet a whole floor, I enjoyed bathtub with my bf, the lights in room are very beautiful also they provided good toilet amenities, bed was good too and beautiful blanket. Breakfast was at 1st floor there was various of food. I ordered scrambled eggs and a chief cooked it for me with mushroom and cheese. There was also salad, curry, noodle, fruits, and many deserts, their homemade yogurt was really impressed! I was so happy with the breakfast here was both Vietnamese and international breakfast Will definitely go back again and recommend to all my friends!

Great Hotel!”

Great WiFi, wonderful and helpful staff, very nice and clean room, great location
very tourist area, no do-not-disturb sign to put on door

I thought the Vien Dong Hotel was great for the price. The hotel is in the heart of the tourist district, so there are a lot of things going on all the time. However, I do not like to be bothered by so many people and I really wanted to see the "real" Vietnam. Overall, the hotel provided a great staff and a good stay. I would recommend it.
